Charlotte Davis, career expert at LinkedIn, shares her top tips, saying: ‘Being involved in the coordination of the day-to-day lives of the Royal Family is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! If you’re thinking about throwing your hat in the ring, here are three easy tips that can increase your chances:

,1. Don’t be afraid. This is a unique role (with a very high-profile boss!) – so few applicants will have direct experience. As with any role, be sure to highlight the transferable skills you have – in this case, it could be managing large and complex projects or working under pressure.

,2. Keep your social professional. Employers more often than not will be searching for candidates online, so making sure you show a professional personality is very important. Keep your LinkedIn up to date and make sure there’s nothing in other public channels that would make any of the royals blush!

,3. Brush up on your interview etiquette. You don’t want to be the person who accidentally gives the Queen a thumbs up – even if it’s via video call! Interviewers are looking for tip-top etiquette from candidates for this role. Attentive body language and steady but friendly eye contact are both really important to giving a great (virtual) interview – outside of practicing your bow and curtis!’
